Details

Two whimsical whales happily swim through the sea in this sweet handcrafted decorative ceramic plate. Designed by Mexican artisan Maria Isabel Cruz, the plate is made using the centuries-old dry rope technique, in which a wax mixture made of magnesium oxide and fat are applied to the outlines of the image or motif prior to glazing. The wax mixture creates a barrier that keeps the different fill colors in the design separate during firing, before burning off to reveal the blackened ceramic beneath. The plate can be hung on a wall for display via the nylon cord on the back.

Even more adorable than the picture on line. The colors are beautiful and it looks lovely in my blue/ beige bathroom. What a pleasure to have the nylon cord in place for hanging.
